    • (1) Thomas Ballard of Surry County, North Carolina (1735-????) <https://ballardofvirginia.wordpress.com/lineage-group-iii-descendants -of-william-ballard-of-caroline-county-virginia-c-1715-1794/thomas-bal lard-of-surry-county-north-carolina-1735/>:

      Thomas Ballard of Surry County, North Carolina was born in 1735.

      On 10 May 1777, a Thomas Ballard was condemned by the Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting for marrying out of unity and former misconduct, yet presented a letter of recommendation from Friends at Tom's Creek Monthly Meeting in Surry Co. North Carolina. He was granted certificate to that Monthly Meeting. Hinshaw, Vol. VI, p. 228.

      Note: Tom's Creek Meeting was the predecessor of Westfield Monthly Meeting. It was located in Surry County, North Carolina, not far from the Virginia line. The meeting for worship was organized about 1771; the preparative meeting in 1784. As noted above, the name was changed to Westfield when the monthly meeting was established in 1786. Previous to this time, Tom's Creek Preparative Meeting had been attached to New Garden Monthly Meeting. In addition to Surry and adjoining counties in North Carolina, the territory of the Westfield Monthly Meeting included adjacent territory in Virginia and settlements in Greene and Jefferson Counties, in Tennessee.

      More likely, this Thomas Ballard was on 29 August 1778 received by the New Garden Monthly Meeting on certificate dated 16 May 1778 from Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting in Hanover County Virginia (his likely brother Moorman was received the same year). Hinshaw, Vol. VI, p. 524.

      Thomas Ballard married Elizabeth _____ and had issue:

      [i] Garman [Jerman, Jarman, German] b. 5 February 1765. On 28 May 1785, Jerman Ballard was granted a certificate to the South River Monthly Meeting in Bedford County, Virginia by the New Garden Monthly Meeting. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p.524. But he returned to the New Garden Monthly Meeting when a certificate was granted 21 January 1786. Hinshaw, Vol. VI, p. 297. His reception at New Garden occurred 25 March 1786. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 524.

      On 9 November 1791, at the Westfield Monthly Meeting, Jarmen, the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Ballard or Surry County, North Carolina, married Rachel Hiett. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959. They remained with Westfield until 1803, when on 4 May 1803 they were granted a certificate to the Mount Pleasant Monthly Meeting. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959.

      The children of Jarman and Rachel Ballard appearing among the records of the Westfield Monthly Meeting are: William, b.1 September 1792; Phebe, b. 20 November 1794; Ansolemn, b. 20 November 1797; Elizabeth, b. 6 October 1798; and Edeth, b. 8 July 1800. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959. on 25 June 1803 at Mt. Pleasant Monthly Meeting, Rachel and her daughters Phebe, Elizabeth, Edith & Rebecca, were received 25 June 1803 on a certificate dated 21 May 1803 from Westfield Monthly Meeting. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 1007.

      [ii] Byrum, b. 1 April 1766. On 9 November 1790, Byrum Ballard was reported married to Sarah Carson in the minutes of the Westfield Monthly Meeting, North Carolina. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959. On 14 November 1812, he was granted a certificate by Westfield to the Fall Creek Monthly Meeting in Ohio. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959.

      [iii] Archer, b. 12 August 1768. On 21 March 1789, Archar Ballard is reported married to Rachel Worley in the minutes of the Westfield Monthly Meeting. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959. On 10 May 1810, at Westfield Monthly Meeting. Archer Ballard is granted by Westfield a certificate to the Fairfield Monthly Meeting in Indiana. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959.

      [iv] Mary, b. 19 January 1771. On 4 January 1792, Mary Ballard, the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Ballard of Surry County, North Carolina, married Jacob Harrold at the Westfield Monthly Meeting. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959.

      [v] Frances, b. 11 January 1774. On 7 November 1793, Frances Ballard, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Ballard of Surry County, North Carolina, married John Burris at the Westfield Monthly Meeting. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959.

      [vi] William, b. 8 November 1776. On 20 October 1798, William Ballard was disowned by the Westfield Monthly Meeting. He must have been re-instated, for on 23 August 1800, a William Ballard and sons Anthony, Asa and William were received on certificate from the Goose Creek Monthly Meeting, certificate dated 8 May 1800 [the latter could be a different William]. Hinshaw, Vol. I, p. 959.
